Top 10 Reasons Being a Personal Stylist Is The Best Job Ever!
1.) Be Your Own Boss
If you are one of those people who can’t stomach the idea of working for other people, or clocking into work every single day – then a career in personal styling may be for you. If you work as a personal stylist, you work for yourself aka you get to be an entrepreneur (which PS is awesome).
2.) High Income Potential
Personal Stylists can make up to $500 – PER HOUR! There is a ton of money to be made as a personal stylist. Couple that with the demand for personal stylists is going up every year. The most exposure this career gets the more people who want their own stylist.
3.) Have Control Of Your Schedule
When you work as a celebrity stylist, you are adjusting your time to their schedule. If they want a fitting a midnight on a Tuesday – then you either do it or miss out on the opportunity. Not so with personal styling. Why? Because the client works with YOUR schedule. Plus, most of your clients work during the weekdays, so you can do your job during the evenings and weekends if you wish.
4.) More People To Reach
There are way more “regular” people in the world than there are celebrities and models. Know what that means? More clients for you.
5.) Shop For A Living
I mean … do we need to elaborate on this point? Wouldn’t you want your “office” to be the inside of a swanky boutique?
6.) Work Anywhere
One of the biggest hurdles for aspiring stylists is geography. To have a successful career as a fashion or celebrity stylist, you need to be in LA or NYC. With personal styling, you can work ANYWHERE! Everyday people need style all over the world.
7.) Be Your Own Brand

8.) Develop Amazing Relationships
Styling people is an intimate process and in doing so, you develop some really cool relationships and connections with people.
9.) Change Lives
This is why 99% of personal stylists do what they do; they change the lives of their clients. Style can pull a client out of a difficult time in their life. We have seen clients get raises, into relationships, married, and have their confidence go through the roof. It truly is an amazing thing to be a part of and to witness.
10.) Love What You Do!
When you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. ‘Nuff said.
